I don’t know how many people get excited about a scab, but let me tell you we are jumping for joy today. The drug Katy used on Monday is a nasal spray called Stimate. It helps bring bleeding under control and speeds healing. She will be using one squirt in her nostril three times this week (every other day). After the first dose I had soaked Katy’s wounds and applied the dressings hoping for things to look better by today. I checked this morning and the open, seeping wounds have scabbed over. They are beautiful! They are perfect! The Stimate can only be used when she has a bleeding episode like this, and since she has never had this happen before we are hoping these episodes will end as the Methotrexate begins to work on the inflammation problem. I am not kidding when I tell you this stuff is like a miracle in a squirt bottle. We have been so blessed to have been given the prescription and that it worked for Katy.
We are so thankful for this encouraging victory. We slept through the night last night without getting up for pain medications as well. We feel so refreshed when we have an uninterrupted sleep. So today we are having a quiet day and enjoying the reprieve. Katy has been talking about getting some wrapping done this afternoon. There is a steady stream of packages arriving in her name. She is doing all her Christmas shopping on the internet this year and being very creative about it, too. We are so thankful for this good day. Thank you for your encouraging comments. It’s like having a cheerleading team chanting, “go, go, go, go, go!” And we are!Comments:
